How many physical therapy visits will I need?
On average, non-surgical patients graduate after 7-10 treatments, but often feel improvement after just one visit. However, your progress and the number of physical therapy sessions you need will depend on your individual condition and commitment to therapy.
Each appointment will last about 45 minutes.
After an initial evaluation, the physical therapist will estimate how long it will take you to recover.
Below are a few more factors that can affect the amount of time it takes you to recover:
1) Addressing Pain Early
Addressing your pain quickly results in the least number of visits so you can quickly return to the activities you love.
2) Chronic or Neglected Pain
If you have chronic or neglected pain, you may need more visits, but you will leave with the confidence that you have addressed the underlying issues and will remain pain free.
3) Post-Surgical Patients
Recovering from surgery is hard work, and we are here to make it go as quickly and easily as possible. You will be seen three times per week for 6 or more weeks. It is a substantial commitment to make a full recovery, but your dedication will pay off.
Our goal is always to help you recover in the least amount of time possible, but each case is treated individually.
